Additional info & updates


Withdrawing acceptances and clearing up some space and money for others. I may be headed somewhere other than law school. Enjoying my job and I think I can grow into my position in the next couple of years. I do want to go back to law / business school eventually, but now is not the time.



I got my waitlist e-mail from Duke. I kind of expected this since I did not fly to campus for an interview, although offered one.

I withdrew my application as well. I don't want to hold up a spot on their waitlist and am happy with my other acceptances and money.


Vanderbilt offering $20,000 a year. Very grateful to them and their quick and informative approach to admissions. News will probably be scarce from here on out. Still no word from a bunch of schools.



Columbia denial letter. Back to reality, whoa there goes reality!



I knew a waitlist / deny from UVA was coming, but it always burns a little more when it happens. An outright acceptance from UVA would have been a great indicator of my status at the reaches, but alas that was not to be.

It'll probably be waitlists / denials from here on out.



I have felt good about my cycle so far. No rejections (crosses fingers), but no unlikely acceptances either. I'm grateful to receive substantial scholarship offers.

Like many others, I'm nervous about the next couple of months, but I think unlikely things can happen. I'm still waiting to hear from about five other schools, and I'll let you all know as soon as I hear the news, good or bad.

As far as taking the LSAT three times, I do not think it has negatively impacted my admissions so far. I believe schools are taking my highest score.

All the schools I have left are reaches. Let's hope for a good 2009 for all of us.



Multiple LSAT baby! I wasn't able to get to my practice score (was practicing in the 170s), but I've got to roll with the punches, and hope for the best. I can't let the test rule my life.

I took it three times, going up each time, but marginally. I'm relying on a strong PS / Resume / LORs to make up the gap. I know that it's very difficult to do so in the law school admission process, especially during such a competitive year (2008-2009), but I've got to try.

And of course, I think my PS / Resume are strong, but that's from my point of view. I could look like a complete idiot to others. Haha, let's hope it's somewhere in the middle.
